We booked the Dorset Arms for 20 girls on a Hen Party for one night. Having read the first review on here , we were slightly concerned about what we were letting ourslelves in for. However , we were pleasantly suprised ....
The Dorset Arms is a local Pub set in a residential area in Walsend, which is only about 10 - 15 mins in a taxi to the Quayside ,which costs around £7. The landlord and owner Jason and Stan made our stay a very pleasant one. We booked all of the ten rooms and basically took over for the weekend. We only had 2 bathrooms between the 20 of us , but we managed fine with these. ( for £28 a night , your not going to get 4 star treatment) , however what you do get is service with a smile and made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and we even got Stan to cook us some food before venturing out for the night. Cheers Stan !!
The pub also has a mini bus that they use and will run you into the Quayside and also collect you when your ready to put your head down for night.
Breakfast was served at our leisure and is basically cereals , toast and yogurts. If you wanted you could have a full english for £2.99 per person ! Bargain !!
All in all , a fab weekend had by all. Would we go back , well of course we would.
If your looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful , then this is the place to go.
